While beets are cooking, add all the dressing ingredients in a large bowl, and whisk until well blended.

Allow the beets to cool enough to handle, peel the skins off.

Chop the beets into wedges and place into the same large bowl with the dressing.

Slice the carrots on the bias about 1/8” thick, blanch the carrots in the boiling water for about 3 minutes.

Rinse under cold water and pat dry.

Add them into the bowl with the beets and dressing.

Toss beets, carrots and dressing until well coated.

Transfer to a serving platter.

Chill in the refrigerator until ready to use.

The salad can be made 1 or 2 days ahead.
